Silly Sunday

Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs. The rules are simple, just have fun.

This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process. Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!

Grape Wine:

This is why I didn’t show up for work yesterday. I was cleaning out my wife’s grandpa’s cellar and found 12 bottles of his home-bottled grape wine under the steps. My wife told me to empty the contents of each and every bottle down the sink, or else. I agreed to do the unpleasant task.

I withdrew the cork form the first bottle and poured the contents down the sink, with the exception of one glass, which I drank. I extracted the cork from the second bottle, did likewise, and drank one glass, just to check the taste to see if the old fellow knew his wine making. He did.

I then opened the third bottle, and poured it, too, down the sink, but not until drinking one full glass to check the purity. It was very good. I did this, also with the fourth bottle. One glass for myself, and the rest down the sink. I pulled the bottle from the cork of the next, and drank one sink out of it and threw the rest down the glass. I pulled the sink out of the next glass and poured the cork from the bottle, then corked the sink with the glass, bottled the drink and drank the pour.

When I had everything emptied, I steadied the house with one hand, counted the bottles, corks, glasses and sinks with the other, which were 29, and as the house came by I counted them again, and finally had all the houses in one bottle, which I drank. I felt so foolish that I couldn’t go upstairs and congratulate my wife to tell her what a great winemaker her grandpa was. I will do that after climbing the basement steps the next time they come by.

    steadied the house with one hand….LOL I'm afraid I wouldn't have made it through all 12 bottles after I emptied the first two (down the sink of course) I would have needed a wee bit of a nap.

    Oh Goodness, what a good time that guy had. Good thing he was able to steady the house with one hand.That one did make me laugh big time. Sandee, you and Zane try to have a good day.

    See ya Sandee. Sorry for being so late. My internet and phone line were out for over 24 hours. Wow, someone at the junction box unplugged the wire to my home. Stupid.

    Hi Sandee, can you please delete the SS link to the Tony Files as I transferred everything back to Atomic Underpants & am going to delete The Tony Files site. Having separate comics & blog sites is just extra hassle
